It’s a Wednesday morning, and I have just flown into a border town — San Diego, America’s most famous. I am, in fact, thinking of borders, for what has brought me here is an invitation from a client (LucidWorks) to take part in an event for an open source community (community events =many, open source = been a while). On the flight down from San Jose, it dawned on me how much time had passed since I last took part in an event like this (a couple of years). And it struck me, even harder, how distant most of the social media world is today from the vibe, the philosophy, and the working principles that make up the world of open source, which arguably gave birth to social media.
